Metin,
Yes, this contest is fun and fair and it is ok for you to make a video about the basics of trigonometry. All videos added on or after July 10, 2011 are for the contest.

2 questions-
1. Does that mean the contest ends on Sep 9, at midnight before it turns to Sep 10?
2. Do Facebook likes count?
Hello Metin,
The contest ends on September 10 at 12 a.m in the morning. Facebook likes do count.
I have another important question, what time zone did you mean. You didn't specify.
The guy I was tied with received one last like, but "6 hours ago" meaning 2 AM for me (eastern time zone)
Unfortunately Metin,
Do to the fact I did not specify, those votes counts. In his time zone, it was 12 am.
That's really unfair. I worked pretty hard on my video (over 8 man hours) and even math teachers I never even knew voted for me, but apparently I am not popular enough. I even asked if this would be a fair contest at the beginning, but it seems that those who live closer to the west coast have up to a 3 hour advantage.
I'm disappointed in the organization of this contest.
It should have had a clear ending time, including where in the world it ends, and maybe even disable the "like" buttons for 24 hours at the time of the ending, to make sure.
I could have had 10 more of my friends (who I declined because it was nearing midnight) vote after midnight and lie, saying I was in California. But no, truth is better.

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?
( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 9^{2} + 0 .
Answer:
A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.
---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)
Presentation Suggestions:
Challenge students to invent their own math limerick!
The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.
